10 Things You Didn’t Know About Goldie Hawn
8. She Never Thought She’d be Famous
In an interview with Elle in 2012, Hawn opened up a bit about her childhood and how challenging it was for her to adjust to life as a celebrity at a very young age. She said it wasn’t necessarily the life that she imagined for herself growing up: “When I was a young girl moving into the industry itself as a dancer, it was really challenging. I was taken out of the chorus line and suddenly put into a position on a television show, moved onto Laugh-In, and became a big deal when I still was not very developed…So it was a lot of assimilating, a very strange life. I was always a performer, always on stage, but I also always believed I was going to go home, open a dance school, get married, and have what you would call a ‘normal’ life,'” she said.
7. She Meditates
Nowadays, meditation is an extremely common form of relaxation and goes hand in hand with yoga, a form of exercise that has also become increasingly popular. Goldie Hawn was one of the first people to start talking about meditation. She started meditating back in the ’70s when it wasn’t all that popular and she’s been raving about it ever since. Especially when people ask her how she ages so gracefully and maintains her optimism. In an interview with InStyle, she said she meditates every day for 20 minutes, at least. “I like to do it for 20 minutes at least in the morning. I also do it in the evening. Sometimes my day goes so long and I don’t want to meditate before bed because it actually wakes me up,” she said.
